The facility time portal has now opened for employers to submit data for the period 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022. The deadline to submit your data is 31 July 2022.
As a public sector employer, there is a legal requirement to report and publish information on facility time for employees who are trade union representatives.
Employers should be aware of the full requirements of the regulations (not just the requirement to publish on the website). The regulations state that employers must:
- publish the information in the form indicated in schedule 2 of the regulations
- place this information on their website
- include this information in their annual report which covers the relevant period (April 2021 to March 2022)
- place the information on a website maintained by or on behalf of the government before 31 July 2022.
